Dachshund Convention

Imagine 10 little dachshunds hurtling towards you as fast as their little cankles can take them! This was the scene I had the pleasure of enjoying at the Midwest Dachshund Rescue’s Dachshund Dash.

On Saturday, my brother and I took Maki to a dachshund convention of sorts in Wheaton, IL. There were raffles, door prizes, hot dogs, contests (one funny little doxie did NOT like his fireman costume!) and of course over 100 dachshunds of all shapes and sizes at any given time.

I was quite proud when my brother won the dog look alike contest! He won a whole bag full of fun toys, treats and a gift card to Baker’s Square! (he kinda does look like Maki…)

We got pretty cold towards the end of the day standing outside watching the Dachshund Dash but we could hardly tear ourselves away! Eventually we decided to go home, but not before getting a picture in front of the Oscar Mayer Wiener truck!
